The St. Peter’s Love Quilt Project, USA is working with the St. Francis Outreach Trust in Simon’s Town, to make special quilts for AIDS orphans.  This project has reached out to schools, churches, scout troops, and others who create art squares with beautiful messages of love to the children in South Africa.  The art squares teach about equality and the power of supporting children in need.  Quilters from around the United States have volunteered to make these quilts. All funds raised from this event directly support the “Home to Grow” managed by St Francis Outreach Trust, South Africa.

Gretchen Ginnerty, the initiator of this quilt project will be speaking about her work at 13:30 on both days.
